Long before the property off Washington Road in Augusta, GA became the world famous Augusta National Golf Club, it was a prosperous nursery called Fruitland Nurseries. Offered here is an incredibly rare 1876 Fruitland Nurseries receipt that, quite incredibly, is also signed by PJ Berkmans on the reverse. We've encountered numerous Fruitland Nurseries documents from the early 1900s, but to find an autographed receipt from 1876 is truly exceptional.
